Piozzo

The majestic castle that dominates the valley was built in the X century, and the ancient fort, called “captain’s house”, is a sign of the town’s strategical importance in the past centuries.

The parish church of santo Stefano was built in the seventeenth century, by Antonio Fontana da Lugano, over the older medieval one.

Nearby is the eighteenth-century sanctuary of the Albarosa, from which it’s possible to see a wonderful view of the Langhe.

History

The town is very ancient, as shown by the Roman tombstones found here and preserved in the town hall.

It was then a feud for the marquis of Saluzzo, and later for the bishop of Asti; it was finally acquired by the Savoia.
